Day 13: How to Clean with Vinegar

I have written down MANY cleaner recipes I want to try this month, and vinegar is a very common ingredient. Not only is the shelf life of vinegar almost indefinite, but because of its acid nature it is self preserving.

Vinegar is a natural organic bi-product of fruits, vegetables and grains. It is therefore edible and biodegradable.  Vinegar is safe for the environment.

It is an ALL-IN-ONE Cleaner, so you don’t need to buy cleaners for different purposes; plus it is inexpensive!!

No need to wear rubber gloves – vinegar is gentle on hands.

Vinegar cleans streak free and there is no need to rinse afterward!

Safe for children – it is non-toxic!

Vinegar does have a distinct odor, but the smell dissipates quickly.

It is effective against a broad range of bacteria, reducing and slowing its growth.

 

You can check out the link above, or read the uses I’ve listed:

 

In the Kitchen

  • Use it full strength on countertops and cutting boards – it will completely remove any odors that may be lurking there. Just wipe afterwards with a damp cleaning cloth.
  • Run the dishwasher with vinegar to clean it.
  • Run a vinegar and water mix through the coffee maker to clean it.
  • Clean and deodorize microwave.
